Among participating artists are father-daughter duo Edward Edington and Michelle Moraga. Their three-in-one ceramic piece, “Dream Path in Color,” is one of 13 pieces that will be featured on the 5-foot-high fence, which stretches along the 1.5-mile Coastal Rail Trail.

“Inspired by dreams, we wanted something bright,” said Moraga about the already-installed project. “I hope people enjoy it.”
